A young lady I’ve been coaching since she was a tween invited me and my wife and children to her sweet sixteen party.
She had a candle lighting ceremony and, much to my surprise, invited me up to light a candle.
Before she did she said, “This candle goes to a man that gave me all the confidence I have today. He made me into a great athlete. The things he comes up with are so God damn funny. He’s the one who makes me want to be the best I could possibly be. Before a race I listen to his words of wisdom and I am immediately relaxed. He doesn’t get the recognition he deserves, but I thank him for turning me into the athlete I am today. I give him so much credit for putting up with the crazy mothers and their kids on the team. You are the best—never ever change on me. Thank you for everything you have done for me. You’re truly the best Coach Bill. Coach Bill, please come light this candle.”
I had no idea.
